Java once again most popular programming language

11th February 2013

A recent report by the TIOBE Programming Community Index has shown Java regaining its former position as the most popular programming language, despite recent security woes.

The boost comes just 10 months after being knocked off the top spot by the C language. The improved figures are being put down to Java's links to the android operating system, offsetting the lapse on PC caused by the security holes found in the languageā€™s browser plug-in capabilities. The PC figures are expected to see an upturn this quarter too, with Oracle's release of a patch for the security issues.

The TIOBE Programming Community Index assesses the popularity of a language by examining language-related search activities on sites such as Google and Wikipedia.

This ever changing popularity of programming languages makes it important for businesses to keep up to date IT support services, such as Taunton IT and Computer Support, to help maintain secure systems.
